“cannot be resolved on direct appeal when the claim has not been raised before
the district court since no opportunity existed to develop the record on the merits
of the allegations.” United States v. Cantwell, 470 F.3d 1087, 1091 (5th Cir.
2006) (internal quotation marks and citation omitted).
We have reviewed
counsel’s brief and the relevant portions of the record reflected therein, as well
as Delgado’s response. We concur with counsel’s assessment that the appeal
presents no nonfrivolous issue for appellate review. Accordingly, the motion for
leave to withdraw is GRANTED, counsel is excused from further responsibilities
herein, the APPEAL IS DISMISSED, and all other outstanding motions are
DENIED. See 5 TH C IR. R. 42.2.
